    Bonita fotografia, bonitas peleas, guión que hace aguas.
    Filme de acción y aventuras para pasar el rato, entretenida y espectacular, sin más.

    Film doesn't focus how the UNESCO famous Hadrain wall is built or why,motives of emperor Hadrain.Even picts were not clearly explained. The movie is about how a Rome centurion escapes picts after being ambushed & what he does when Rome betrays him in the end. Locations are serene.

    Aside from the performances of Michael Fassbender and Dominic West, Centurion is nothing more than visceral, old-fashioned, B-Movie entertainment. For those seeking a mindless distraction, recommended. For those craving anything more, skip it.

    What a mess! After praising Marshal's excellent but overlooked Doomsday, comes this bummer of a film. Dont get me wrong. There are great battle scenes and incredible actors, but the story is so muddled. What worked in Doomsday is Centurion's greatest weakness. I think there is a great film inside that periodically pops out, but droll and convoluted story lines drag this movie down to 2 stars instead of 3 or 4.

    I was looking for a time-waster last night and well, if the description reads Michael Fassbender, say no more. This was better than I thought it would be. It tells the legend of the Roman 9th Legion in what is now Scotland in the 2nd century. You know the story; Rome is taking over all of Europe but when they get to the British Isles they are in for a surprise. The people fight back. There is a lot of…

    Adequate action-thriller. Not one of Marshall's better films.

    "In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, piss and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation."

    There's something about Neil Marshall's films. Centurion isn't particularly great and it's riddled with plot contrivances, but I like it anyway. I can't explain it. Maybe Marshall's just filling some bloodlust escapist void I'm unaware of, or maybe I'm experiencing some strange residual effect from his claustrophobic masterpiece The Descent and I'm subconsciously just willing to overlook any of the gaping flaws in his work as a result.

    While it has an awesome cast, there are a lot of issues with this film once you get to the style, the action and the overall point of the story. It does have good action, though it feels like the filmmakers were trying a little to hard to replicate some of the "300" flare in action. Which is a little funny that Fassbender is in both films.

    Wunderschön saftig von Neil Marshall in Szene gesetzt und auch die Schauspieler um Michael Fassbender, Dominic West und Olga Kurylenko hinterlassen einen positiven Eindruck. Ja, macht Spaß.
